Having been established for over 20 years, our Aylesbury branch has our biggest lettings portfolio of all of the Alexander & Co/Ella offices. We pride ourselves on the service we provide for landlords and tenants alike across our business. For us, it’s really important that landlords feel that they are getting the best from their managing agent, and renters feel supported throughout their tenancy with us.
Someone who embodies all of the qualities we hold dear is our new Aylesbury Lettings Manager, Andy Banner, who joined us at the beginning of March 2020. Andy began his career as a Lettings Negotiator over 18 years ago for Halifax Property Services, which became Leaders Roman Group, where he worked for 12 years before relocating to Buckinghamshire. Andy then went to work for Connells as a Lettings Manager, where he has just joined us from.
‘One of things I love most about my job is being able to help people,’ Andy said, ‘whether that be helping tenants find a new home or providing a service to landlords to get them moving or bring in an income for investment clients. The property industry is always changing: legislation is updated; the cycle is always in motion; stock and demand fluctuates all the time, so ensuring that we’re doing everything we can for our clients is of the utmost importance.’
So, what prompted the move to Alexander & Co? ‘Alexander & Co are a small but growing independent estate agent, who are very hands-on with their clients and take estate agency back to its true values. They give more back than most, and their family feel and focus on the local community are all factors that appealed to me. I’m a family man myself: I’m married with two boys, nine and three, and I love spending time with them at weekends. My eldest son has just caught the sports bug, and is following my love and passion for football. I played semi-professionally when I was younger and am a qualified coach, and have been an avid Manchester United fan my whole life. My eldest now plays at weekends, and I’m sure my youngest will follow in his footsteps.’
We’re delighted to have Andy as part of the Alexander & Co family, and he’s already hit the ground running, eager to get cracking and make a difference to our clients.
If you’re a tenant looking for a new home, or a landlord looking for a managing agent, come and speak to Andy and his team at Alexander & Co. We’d be delighted to help in any way we can.
